BBC trained Archive Producer with over 10 years of experience of both BBC and ITV research systems. Specialising in music, cinema, comedy, history and motor-sports. Skills include programme development, script writing, edit producing, archive budget forecasting, sourcing and clearing footage, music and stills.

I can work with all formats from film to tape to digital and have a thorough understanding of copyright, fair-dealing, best endeavours, et al. I have established global contacts with all major archive suppliers and can negotiate heavily reduced rates. I have an excellent track record delivering productions on time and on budget.
